Each proposal will be subject to peer review, with the ten best being selected for publication in this volume of LLC. Authors chosen for publication will be then required to submit a 4-5,000 word paper regarding their research. Each author will have the opportunity to be mentored by a senior scholar in the discipline to aid in the completion of their paper.

This is an excellent opportunity for young scholars in the field of Humanities Computing to be published in a widely read, esteemed journal. Although this call is primarily for young scholars in Humanities Computing, all proposals will be considered as long as they are not from those who hold a full time academic post. People who have began their academic careers late, and have not yet had the opportunity to establish themselves in their discipline are encouraged to submit a paper. The editors are striving for as wide a coverage of Humanities Computing as possible and encourage senior academics to circulate this call for papers.
